Hollowbody / Production 1975 – 1992
Rickenbacker’s sweeping crescent shape of its Capri models took a rather, what was termed as a “turn for the worst” when it stretched out to accommodate two necks.
The earliest double necked Rickenbacker’s were from 1961 and were configured as a 6 sting guitar and a 4 string bass combo and were best known to have been played by Mike Rutherford of Genesis. With stiff competition from Gibson in the early 1960’s with there 6 & 12 solidbody guitar models, Rickenbacker came up with its own 6 & 12 double neck.
The 362/12 was based on the Capri 360 model, but with the old style body, with a bound top rather then the new rounded top design. Rickenbacker’ also offered a soildbody double neck version, but only with guitar / bass configuration.
